    How to Delete Windows 10 User Password


    Tonight I did a dumb thing. I've been trying to run RDR2 for PC. One suggestion was try to run the game in "safe mode" with reduced graphics.

    So I went into my msconfig and ticked the box that allowed me to Boot into Safe Mode. I did not tick the box that would allow me to boot into "Safe Mode with Networking".

    I restarted the PC. The PC came up to the log-in screen. Normally I login with a four digit PIN. The login screen won't accept my four digit login PIN and unfortunately I don't remember my log-in password nor can I find where I wrote it down.

    How do I get back in?

    I'm running Windows 10 Home updated to build 1903.

    Your help would be very much appreciated.

    Dale

  2. Windows 10 User Password

    Hello Ryan,

    Thank you for showing interest in Windows 10.

    Unfortunately there is no way to see what password you have stored on your account. I would suggest you to contact your brother and check if your brother remembers the password and can help you with it.

    The other way is that you reset the password (if you are using a Microsoft account)

    Reset your password

    If you are using a local account, you may remove the password and set a strong password again by yourself or by consulting your brother. To remove the password, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Type control panel and click on Ok.
    • On the top right corner, change the view by to large icons.
    • Click on User accounts. And then click on manage another account.
    • Under the list, select your account and click remove/delete password.

    Once the password is deleted, you may go to the same settings to set a new password.

    Hope this information was helpful. Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    How to Delete Windows 10 User Password

    Cannot access my User Account on local machine but can access Admin account. Need help finding password but NOT reset it as it will delete saved data.

    Hi,



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    If you reset the local account password it will not delete the Saved data.

    Follow the steps below to reset the password.


    • Press Windows + R.

    • Type netplwiz and press enter.
